This briefing paper focused on four basic questions concerning Maine’s women workers: 1) Why are many women workers in Maine facing economic insecurity despite being employed? 2) Are the largest occupations for Maine women workers in the next decade likely to offer greater economic security, or will women workers continue to be at risk? 3) Is the apparent decrease in the male/female wage gap in 2001 a result of better conditions for women, or worse conditions for male workers? 4) What can be done in Maine to address the economic challenges faced by women workers?
